California Country Girl

INTRO CHORUS:
10 to the 5 to the 91,
Keep going west till you hit the sun.
Beach city living is so much fun with a
California Country Girl.

VERSE 1:
Well I left my heart in a little dive bar,
Tripping through Bama in my hybrid car.
Cute little number if your eyes are sore,
Giving me the wink and a smile.
She said "You ain't from around these parts,
You kinda look like a surfer wearing them shorts"
I thought if this is how the small talk starts,
Ain't got a chance in a country mile.

PRE-CHORUS:
I said I'm from back west down the road a piece,
I'll take a tall boy before I leave and then I'm headed down the...

CHORUS:
10 to the 5 to the 91,
Keep going west until you hit the sun.
Beach city living ain't for everyone,
But you're a California Country Girl.

VERSE 2:
She says she grew up in Mississippi near Ocean Springs,
But the gulfs the only beach that she's ever seen.
She was still a little green, if you know what I mean,
Every city slickers wet dream.
Well fresh out of school singing "Roll tide roll!"
With her bachelor's degree and no where's to go.
Now she's dishing out beers to Billy and Joe,
In this Alabama watering hole.

PRE-CHORUS:
I said "You could sling drinks in Hermosa Beach,
Just get in your truck and leave" Start headed down the...

CHORUS:
10 to the 5 to the 91
Keep going west till you hit the sun.
Country town life ain't the only one,
When you're a California Country Girl.

BRIDGE:
Well she says she'll miss the folks back home.
But in this state of sunshine,
We got rednecks of our own.

VERSE 3:
And nowadays it's uncouth, to have one for the road,
So I paid my tab and I hit the commode.
And on the way out the door I left with a joke saying,
"See you where the palm trees grow"
Well she let out a laugh and said "yeah right"
But something inside of her changed that night.
Deep down she knew that I was right,
At anytime she could just take flight.

PRE-CHORUS:
And I'll be waiting with just my guitar strapped on,
I'll sing her this country song, bout' headed down the...

CHORUS:
10 to the 5 to the 91,
Keep going west till you hit the sun.
Beach city living ain't for everyone,
But you're a California Country Girl.
Heading down the 10 to the 5 to the 91,
Keep going west till you hit the sun.
Bring your bikini but leave your gun,
When you're in California Country Girl.
My California Country Girl.
She's a California Country Girl.
